Charming Monsters

The Effects of Time Travel on Neurotic Homos

From press release: 

You wake up one day in a chasm of space. The air is heavy with the smell of time travel. You are alone….kind of. You are 15 years old, young and full of idealistic notions of art and your future. Beside you stands yourself at 25, a self-proclaimed marketing genius that relishes in the perils of modern day cleaning products circa 2003. You are both there with yourself at 35, sexually charged and unemployed with an iPhone.

Welcome to the Effects of Time Travel on Neurotic Homos, a sharp witted comedy about personal identity and how it evolves with age.

This piece plays at the George Ignatieff Theatre. Performances: WED JULY 3, 10:30 PM; SAT JULY 6, 5:15 PM; MON JULY 8, 8:00 PM; TUE JULY 9, 3:00 PM; THU JULY 11, 12:00 PM; FRI JULY 12, 8:45 PM; SAT JULY 13, 4:00 PM

Just Lift Your Feet

From press release: 

A woman encounters a dying animal on a lonely road, and realizes she is facing the loss of something within herself. Part myth, part reality, JUST LIFT YOUR FEET is a mesmerizing fable of a woman, a creator, an artist who longs to deeply connect to others, to embrace and embody life… but suddenly realizes the connection, the embrace… is gone.

This piece plays at the Robert Gill Theatre. Performances: WED JULY 3, 10:30 PM; FRI JULY 5, 5:15 PM; SAT JULY 6, 7:30 PM; MON JULY 8, 3:00 PM; TUE JULY 9, 8:30 PM; WED JULY 10, 2:00 PM; SAT JULY 13, 10:30 PM

It’s Always You

From press release: 

A musical. The day is now. 4:03 PM.

3 people. Bill, Elaine and Ted. Elaine married Bill and they now have a grown child.
Or not.
Elaine married Ted and Ted lost his friendship to Bill.
Or not.
Or Bill and Ted stayed friends and both lost Elaine.

Surely there’s one reality where all three managed to live happily ever after?

Threads

From press release: 

In August of 1968, a farm girl from rural Indiana stepped off a plane in Saigon, Vietnam. The people and events that led her there, and her subsequent adventures, make for an extraordinary tale that proves the truth can be stranger than fiction.

Contest Rules: 
(these will remain the same for each Fringe contest, so take the time to read the list once and you’ll be set)

  • The only acceptable form of entry for the contest is by email, sent to contests@mooneyontheatre.com (Mooney on Theatre will never use your email address for anything other than to reply to the specific contest you entered, and we certainly would never sell it or anything like that)
  • Each show counts as its own contest, and each entry must be in a separate email. So, if 5 shows are giving tickets away on a given day, and you want to try for each of them, then you need to send 5 emails.
  • Entrants must be available on the day and time listed in the contest. The tickets are available for that showing only, and cannot be transferred to another date.
  • The winning entrants will be chosen by a random drawing.
  • Winners will be notified by email by 9pm on the day of contest closing and need to confirm their attendance 10am AT THE LATEST the following morning so that their names can be given to the theatre company for tickets to be set aside.
  • Photo I.D. may be required to claim the winning tickets.
  • Tickets must be picked up 60 to 30 minutes before show time at the venue box office. The box office reserves the right to release any tickets not picked up 15 minutes before show time.
  • We ask that all winners provide us with a quick blurb on what they thought of the show, either in the comments section of the press release on Mooney on Theatre, or if it has already been reviewed by Mooney on Theatre in the comments section of that.
